the answer is here:

http://www.eurosport.com/home/pages/...to428637.shtml

"When I was four years old, we moved from England to USA, when my mother found out that I won't be KING!" -- Bob Hope--

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

BBC owns all the rights of Wimbledon and doesn't sell it to other European networks, except national channels when their nationals play. Buying the rights of BBC is very expensive.

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Well Eurosport hasn't been showing Wimby for some time now.

Usually the rights are with PayTV (Premiere that is) or (as for our area) DSF / ARD are broadcasting - just don't be surprised when they focus on the german players

The second swiss channels TSR 2 (french spoken part) TSI 2 (italien spoken part) might be kind enought to show matches where swiss players are involved. Unfortunately SFDRS 2 (german spoken part) isn't as flexible they only start broadcasting in the later rounds.

Eurosport can't help it that BBC asks so much money for Wimbledon rights !

ARD (DAS ERSTE) and later DSF(from 5 pm) are both showing Wimbledon live.The two tv channels(analog/digital) are on the Astra 1 19,2 ° East Satellite.Both tv channels are free to air programmes.

I always cheer for Monica
